If you take a closer look you can see that dragon has some additional bones and a open ribcage.

Yes, indeed he does. Well, now it is 3,5% more original

Lol, c'mon people! It has been stated in advance that "returning units will use the same models as H6 ones" And back then, us, people who have been pointing this out, have benn told to: "wait till reveal" and: "textures will be reworked"

Well textures have been reworked. What did you expect?

I don't care if they used the same models, as long as they look nice. And to those that want H2 and H3 Necro .... you won't get one in the forseable future. If H8 rolls out someday, Necro will be based on this art design. Period. It has been stated. As long as it's Ashan, Necropolis will use this art style.

I don't like it, but have come to grips with this fact long ago.

H6 Necropolis was worse than this one.
H5 Necropolis was worse than this one.
If H4 one was better can be debated, but I remember I hated the look on Vampire and Bone Dragon back then. Also all units in general, not just Necro looked very awkward to me. So I have to give it to H7 in this also.

H3 version was the best imo ... but that was released in 1999 ... We had 16 years of Necropolis looking worse than in H7. This is sad.

Let us face it. If necro would use H3 art style it would be out of place, comparative to other factions. All factions use similar guidelines. It is not hard to predict how Sylvan and Stronghold will look.

Also:
This is Lamassu:


It is not Manticore. It is another mythological creature alltogether.

Imo. the Lamasu is the least of the problems going on with Necropolis line-up. But then again, I also don't agree that H5 necro was worse than this one, in fact, I think H5 necro was pretty great.

Indeed, H5 imo had probably the best Necropolis town out of all of them so far.

You have some strange tastes then ... but every one has it's own opinion on this. Artstyle is subjective afterall. I liked H5 Necro the least of all versions. Only H6 sci-fi design can come to compete with it.

I mean c'mon - we're talking about this:

So they told us in advance that they're gonna feed us the same Heroes 6 crap again and that's supposed to cut it? I think they expect us to appreciate it too, right? The problem is not that they warned us, the problem is that they did it anyway in spite of all the criticism. Them just bringing excuses before the fact just proves that they knew they were at fault.

Here's something for you, and Erwan alike because he doesn't seem to get it either: I don't care about Ashan, I care about good creatures and good factions. In this case, Necropolis. The Ashan version is NOT what you expect a Necropolis to be. Not in the slightest. Not in the lore since they're just a bunch of outcast overzealous heretics worshiping a Spider image, not in the creatures that look nothing alike undead, with some exceptions. Take this one for instance:



Tell me just ONE feature that connects this creature with the idea of a vampire. I dare you take this test: show this to someone in your house who doesn't play video games and ask him/her what he/she believes it represents. I took it with my mom and she said "knight with sword".

And excuse me, but Heroes 5 Necropolis was tons better than this Heroes 6 recycle. That's one of the reason it was declared non-canon.

If you can accept the franchise being compromised because of someone's Ashan crap then you have low standards. I won't accept this forced snow and I will be a critic about it since they target me as a potential buyer. If they don't want to listen then they can take their product and shove it down their butt holes.

Hello everyone. First of all a short introduction. I have been wandering around this forum since the announcement of Heroes 6 and I finally decided to create an account. I hope you will have much patience for newbie.
Now to the point. Ubi-Nox made a few comments about returning units stating they still need to be polished and when we will see their artworks we might change our opinion about them.
Quote:
    Concerning quality of screenshots, we are still in a Work In Progress version of those creatures so that’s why they appear less polished than Haven & Academy ones.

and
Quote:
   This is work in progress material, concept arts will allow you to discover a new face of those creatures.

What new face does he think of? About new textures promised by Marzhin?
I hope we will descover it soon, coz what they gave us know is looking far from being complete.

Those are screenshots of the 3D renders. It's their in-game models. They look metallic because of that, so the only change you'll get is at an aspect level, but the models are there for good.

the color changes they did (which must have taken them a mighty two minutes of effort in Photoshop, the poor dears) are the "new" textures, pal
